TRUTH IN POLITICAL ADVERTISING

To be delivered to The Virginia State House, The Virginia State Senate, Governor Terry McAuliffe, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

It is time for a law that makes out and out baldfaced lying for political gain an offense punishable my huge fines. If a politician or his PAC is generating lies that can be refuted 100% by the facts, those parties should face enormous fines. If they are going to slander their opponent, let's make sure that it is the TRUTH!
There are currently 10 signatures. We need 50 signatures!

Petition Background

Since we are stuck with "Citizens United" and unlimited corporate money in politics, we should at least get TRUTH in advertising. This will hold politicians accountable with what they say in ads. Right now, lies are allowed to be perpetrated with no penalty. This must stop!
